This event is part of a research project on Parkinson's disease, led by Chrystalina Antoniades, and made possible by Oxford University's Public Engagement with Research Seed Fund. It is an extension of the "Picturing Parkinson's" project, which aims to bridge the gap between objective research into Parkinson’s disease and subjective patient experience of the condition, through the medium of fine art.
The event introduces Jonny Acheson, a doctor and artist living with Parkinson’s, as he shares aspects of his personal journey. Chrystalina and other experts will also talk about their research undertaken as part of the Oxford Quantification Study (OxQUIP), which is all about developing new ways to measure Parkinson's symptoms.
This event is organised jointly by the Nuffield Department of Clinical Sciences and Reuben College, University of Oxford.
Please register on Eventbrite to join via Zoom and participate in the panel discussion. The Zoom link will be sent to you the day before.
You can also watch the livestream on the Reuben College YouTube channel, and questions can be sent through the comments function, which will be moderated.
